Very good hotel with very freindly landlady and staff. The hotel rooms are very good but can sometimes be a little noisy in the morning rush hour. The parking is also very good and secure making it ideal for visiting Kendal

Stayed at the Highgate whilst attending a gig at Bootleggers. All dealings with the hotel were excellent - from booking, to staying, to leaving. Linda and Jill are great hosts. The location couldn't be better - on the main street, with secure parking. Its an old building so don't expect huge rooms, etc, but do expect very comfortable, clean and...

We stayed here for a night as we were going to a gig at the Brewery arts centre which was across the car park about 200yds away away. The private car park made it a cheap parking option. This is a grade 2 listed building built in 1796 on the foundations of cottages for the first GP Dr Ainslee. The...

Stayed at Highgate for one night during a walking trip through the UK and Ireland. This is an old hotel close to restaurants and shops etc. A good location. The hotel is an old building with all the interesting quirkiness that goes with such places. Some of the floors are a bit uneven, doors are not always at the same...

This Hotel is in the centre of Kendal with a private car park. This is important in a town with real parking problems. The hot breakfasts are very good but the fruit for breakfast is always tinned grapefruit and prunes with milk. Bedrooms vary in size due to the age of the building. Cats are around the hotel and there...

Hotel was on a good location for our gig at "The Brewery" also for shopping, lovely breakfast, in need of a good makeover, smells really bad of cigarettes, would stay here again but only for location, quite expensive for the run down hotel, we have stayed in some fantastic hotels for the same price, very overpriced.
